Try Tungsten White Balance just after sunset, also - get a PL filter for water at night

An old trick for the blue early evening sky is to change to Tungsten WB setting. Give it a try!

Next, even at night, a polarizing filter can dramatically improve shots with water present.  Sure, the PL filter can cause you to lose a stop of light - so you'll need a tripod.  I would also turn off the IS for night shots and use a tripod - even though people believe that IS == Handheld ; not all the time.   Try stopping down between f4 and f8 too.

Mirrorless means you can buy a linear polarizer, rather than a circular polarizer which you must use on a DSLR.  I've been happy with the Hoya.
